morning. i think the reality is that there is still going to be a lot that is lost from this economy. initial estimates right now are 30, 40, some as high as $50 billion that could be lost as a result of all of this storm activity. however, and this is what you're referring to. some economists are saying, well, you might see a pick up in building activity and homes need to be rebuilt and construction projects need to resume and, thus, you could see another $30 billion potential in construction that happens after the fact. nonetheless, as you point out, you're left with all those economic costs in the immediate term. all those waitresses not waiting tables right now are not making tips. the movie theater that was closed in new york taking in, as you point out, $3,000 in revenue. that stuff has a snowballing effect. what it does, victor, it creates an immediately slow down in the economy that hopefully, at some point, starts to turn around. but those losses are very real and they take time to dig out from under. as far as the construction goes, yes, we will probably see more constructi

for the president? >> i think if you look at all the economic indicators and where we've seen the economy move over the last three years, especially given what the president inherited in 2009, americans should feel good about the direction we're going in. we've had 33 straight months of new private sector jobs added. second month under 8% for unemployment. we still have work to do. that's what's so important about this election. we need to stick with president, show up and vote for the president so we can keep the policies moving forward that have gotten us headed back the right direction. and not go backwards to the economic policies of the past, the ones that mitt romney is advocating for where you have a trickle down economic attitude. that's exactly what got us into this mess in the first place. we feel good about the report on friday. we know there's a on the more to do. and the president is going to keep working until every american who wants a job can get a job. but we feel like the economy is a good issue for us and the president is proud of his record. >> brent colburn, hope you get some s

regulations on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare voucherized. >> reporter: i think it's fair to say that four years ago early voting helped obama win the white house. the same thing is being said this year, that a lot of voters will come early and vote before election day. this is our new poll out in ohio. among those voting early, you can see the president has a big advantage there, 58% to 39%. mitt romney has the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here,
took office, this economy was bleeding 800,000 jobs a month. the president has done an extraordinary job in making sure he studied this economy, and now we are seeing an uptick. the fact that the republicans now want to turn around and point a finger at the president is sad, to say the least. >> let's talk about the independents. let's pull the republicans out of the conversation for now. the independents we know, and we have known for some time, will decide this. and there's no guarantee they're following behind the president and buying his plan. what are ohio democrats going to do to get those independents to come along? >> well, we're out there, we're knocking on doors, making the phone calls. democrats as well as independents, again, they understand who has been standing by their side. while republicans wanted to let the auto industry go down in flames, this president stood up and he threw out a lifeline to the auto industry. as you know, victor, one of every eight jobs in this state is tied to the auto industry. those are high-paying middle class jobs. democrats, independents an
